The fever catches on...

I promise (or at least try to promise) that this will be my last cartogram post. Looks like map fever has caught on a big way since my first cartogram. If you are not already sated by maps, maps and more maps, check out the extensive resources on election cartograms at UCSB provided by Sara Fabrikant.

Her maps have Alaska and Hawaii (which I and others shamelessly ignored). I must say that Alaska looks like an albatross in this map.

  1. Apparently the map distorts to show the weighted average of voting; ie; heavy voting on the West Coast expands that domain by virtue of the weight of numbers. Interesting concept. If used with per-capita data as found in the World Bank report I wonder how each country in the world would change in perspective?
